View Full Version : object not selectable /no freeze/callback

03 March 2009, 01:26 PM
I am wondering is there a special state of an object where it is not selectable and only modifiable from script. The particular object is a spline.
Do anyone knows a solution for this, except freezing it or checkin that the picked object is the objects which shouldnt be selected.
Thank you very much.

an expression or script controller might be governing what you're trying to change.. what -are- you trying to change?

sounds curious, either way. Perhaps you can Save Selected it for us to peruse?

as i understand he wants to make an object "unselectable" without freezing it...

yes, an object strictly for viewing purpose.
I have a spline, I would like to have an offseted version to view after every change of the original spline.
Everything is done, I just want to make sure the user wont be able to alter any way the offseted spline. I know I can check for the object and move it back etc, but I would like if there a simpler solution.

ohh.. I thought you -had- an object that, etc. and you wanted to 'fix' it.

Well the solution is pretty much the reverse, I reckon.. you'd have to make a copy that you'd limit by means of e.g. a script controller. Won't stop selection - for that you'd have to use a general event callback or node event system callback, and de-select the object when it's selected by the user.

Freezing the object is certainly easier :>

Sripted controller is a good idea, I will look into it. Thanks.
